Abstracts due June 30, 2016


Applying for a travel award is part of the abstract submission process. Travel awards are available for a limited number of trainees. The Awards Committee considers demonstrated interest, ability, need, and diversity, especially under-represented groups in science and those from minority serving institutions. We expect typical awards to be: $500 - $700, depending on need. The travel award submission must be in one .pdf document including: 1) your CV or resume; 2) a statement of up to 300 words explaining why you are a good candidate for a travel award; and, 3) a list of your anticipated expenses. Trainee travel awards will be notified before registration opens.
